INDICE DE GALERIAS
MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — The father of a child killed in December’s shootings at Newtown’s Sandy Hook Elementary School has been offered a 30-day sentence to resolve criminal charges he has faced since 2011.
The News-Times of Danbury reports (http://bit.ly/10umRGp ) that Neil Heslin has until July 9 to accept the plea deal.
Heslin’s case involves motor vehicle charges and allegations he issued bad checks to purchase building materials for his construction company.
Judge Frank Iannotti on Wednesday noted that Heslin has made restitution. Under the deal, Heslin would plead guilty only to driving with a suspended license.
Heslin and his attorney, public defender Bruce Weiant, declined to comment.
Heslin has become an outspoken advocate for gun control since his son, Jesse Lewis, and 25 others were killed in Newtown on Dec. 14.
